April 27, 2010

The first skit went well.  The group really pulled it together quickly, once they knew what happened.  Elyse’s return from a trip required the group to review the information about the event but it turned out a great way for them to come together as a team.  The drafted the script quickly and practiced...

Easy Way to Get a Smile on Your Face! No Surgery Needed!

April 11, 2010

There is nothing quite as uplifting then listening to children’s music.  My sister-in-law was saying how they were tired of listening to the same music for Julien so I got out my CD’s that my students enjoyed when I taught Kindergarten.  It was fun listening to tunes I haven’t heard in awhile – each one...
